I bought a used car back in May, when I lived in a different state. I moved to California now and noticed they charge a use tax (the difference in sales tax paid at my original state and the CA sales tax) if I bought the car within the past year of moving to California. Is it possible to circumvent... Read more »
I got a business school loan refinanced by local bank. At the time it seem like their policy was not to report the debt to credit bureaus. Four years later with a perfect payment history they decided to report it. It didn’t hurt my credit score but it did hurt my debt to income ratio and now... Read more »
I, and a friend, were harassed and discriminated against by two employees for not wearing a mask while shopping at a local grocery store. I can't afford to hire an attorney, so I'll have to go pro per. Are there any cases for a similar lawsuit? Thanks.
I resell bikes and I happened to buy a stolen bike and tried to sell it. This is my second time of trying to sell a stolen bike. The first time I sold the bike to someone but they traced the bike back to me. The second time the bike was taken from me and I was wondering if I can get my money back.... Read more »

The Debt Consolidation company took their fees, ignored one creditors that filed a lien against me, the other sent me to collections, the third they stopped paying altogether, this company made me pay more than the original agreement because they said I violated my agreement.

I recently purchased a vehicle from a Chevrolet dealership in San Diego, CA. I had horrible credit at the time and was only able to be approved with a large down-payment, which I was able to make happen. The amount on the paperwork does not even closely reflect the $12,000 I put down. What can be... Read more »

I have been drinking Starkey water from Whole Foods for many years until I found out just last Friday on 06/19/2020 that it is very high in arsenic levels. I have developed liver illness (advanced fibrosis). I live in San Francisco of California.
I'm sorry for your issues. You do NOT want to normally be part of a class action as the remedies offered are rarely as good as the remedies you can get on your own. Your more important question since you are automatically part of the class if you fit the class description, is "How do I...Read more »
we had an accidental online bid and won a vehicle. we informed right away that it was an accident, but the auction is not willing to wave and only giving us an option to pay $400 or pick up the vehicle, the fee amount is not stated in the policy and was informed by the last person we talked to that...

Sorry for your issues. No way to KNOW what all of your rights are without reading the document you speak of. Lawyers typically get $250.00 an hour and up so hiring one makes little sense here. IF it is true that there is no provision for the $400 you speak of, I guess they can sue you and you can...Read more »
I signed a video release authorization that permitted my procedure to be filmed for internal use, but I specifically signed the portion that says: "I DO NOT authorize the use of these photos, films or videos for social media advertising purposes."
If they have used your image without your consent they may have done this to others as well. If it was me and I was unhappy about it, I'd do both, ask for them to take it down and seek monetary compensation.
I paid in full cash in March and it was supposed to be picked up my mid March but then everything closed, they now want me to pick it up but prom is over and I was supposed to receive it months ago. How do I get my refund.
Hard to say here? Sorry for your issues. IF they did not allow you to pick it up that is one thing. If you chose not to do so, that's another. Some folks keep these dresses for a lifetime, others sell them as used once or in your case, if you went that route, as 'never' used....Read more »

Sorry for your issues. Assuming all facts you state to be correct, you can go with an Auto Fraud claim (attorney) or you can go with an Unfair Debt Collection claim (Attorney) or someone who handles both. Anyone who practices consumer law should be able to handle OR refer to the proper firm.
I buy windows and doors from the manufacturers and sell to contractors. A contractor called me about some door problems from a job I did for him 3 years ago (new construction/small apt. building) and wants the manufacturer to go to the job and fix them. He says the job has been on hold and dormant,... Read more »
The only way to know about whether a warranty covers is to READ the warranty! IF it's say, 10 years and you are only in year three, you're good to go assuming it IS a warranty issue? The thing to do is to make sure you KNOW it is a warranty issue AND to make sure you KNOW what the...Read more »
I recently purchased a vehicle which was listed as "125k original miles."
I found a service document listing this vehicle at 161,422 miles on 7/20/17. The VIN and license number match. However, the gauge cluster reads 125k miles. Because of the increase in miles, there is a... Read more »
I have service records indicating that the mileage on the car is more than what is listed on the odometer from 3 years ago. It was listed at 161,422 from a Jiffy Lube on 7/20/17. Upon purchase, the mileage is at 125,644.
To commit odometer fraud is a CRIMINAL offense, a Federal Crime. IF it's done by an individual AND you can prove intent, ie, they knew it, that person can be charged criminally. It would be HARD to get law enforcement generally to take it seriously though. Maybe DMV would take it seriously?...Read more »
